Starbucks hot apple crisp macchiato

Image
In a previous post I reviewed the iced apple crisp. Today is a strange weather day it’s sunny and raining at the same time. Cold from the wind and hot from the sun at the same time. It seemed to be a perfect day to try a fall drink released in summer.  I also had stars that were going to expire soon. I would normally order a tall since I was using the stars I got a grande. The only customization I did was request coconut milk. I know it’s not the best for this kind of drink it’s the one I like the most. Otherwise I wanted to try it the way it came.  Previously I had gone shopping with my mom and then decided to walk home. I had a heavy bag of flour to carry on the 1.5 km home. I was hoping that I could sit outside at Starbucks. All the outside tables were taken and inside was efficient with them having a person opening and closing the door and telling you to go pick up your mobile order if it’s there. I’m not comfortable sitting inside anyways but it was definitely an atmosphere of gra

I tried more meal kits from Vegano




Vegano is the first company I have ordered a second meal kit from. I even have credits with other companies but I can’t find anything I like. It’s amazing I found a vegan company I like. The meal kit is $70 including delivery for 3 meals for two people. The price is good for what you get I usually get three or four big portions out of each kit even though they are meant to be two portions. 

The first meal I made this week is grilled zucchini spaghetti it came with big pieces of grilled zucchini that the instructions say to put in the oven for 15 minutes. I cut the zucchini into pieces. The spaghetti was brown rice and the kit had cashew spinach dip, arugula, and a lemon vinaigrette. This one is easy to put together. It’s delicious I would order it again. 


The second meal was an Indian butter cauliflower. This is meant to be a vegan version of butter chicken. It came with garlic naan and rice. I had leftover khichari which is rice and lentils. I didn’t cook the rice in the kit I will use it another time. The cauliflower was cut up and it was easy to cook with the sauce.I also added soy curls and vegan butter to this dish. There was green chutney that was meant to be plated on top I marinated the soy curls in it. I was expecting the garlic naan to be more like garlic bread with parsley and butter but it was just bread that had a garlic flavour in it. It was a good dish. Before I became vegan I would buy those vegetarian canned butter chicken sauces from Costco the flavour of this dish was similar. It was good but because I am not a big fan of cauliflower I’m not sure if I would order this dish again. 


The third dish was vegan southwest polenta cakes. I had a lot of other food this week. The instructions say cook within 5 days, I didn’t cook it until 7 days but it was fine. The polenta was very tasty and the portion is huge. I have leftovers for a couple days. I was only able to salvage half the avocado and I think it was because someone was not gentle with it but it could be because I left it so long. The instructions says to cook the polenta in a pan and then the peppers. I wish I had thought to heat the polenta in the air fryer because I think it would have gotten nice and crisp. The black bean and corn salsa was meant to be added cold on top but I sautéed it with the peppers. The peppers had a nice spice to them and matched nicely with the dish. This dish also came with cilantro for garnish and it was still fresh after 7 days. This dish was easy to prepare and tasty. I might order it again in the future. 

I have already ordered another set of meals from Vegano for next week. I will definitely be reviewing more of the meals in the future.
